Subject: A rare example of Australian cinema advertising
This compile is of Australian-produced cinema commercials (with a TV version tacked on the end), as denoted by their being in colour - Australia didn't get full-time colour TV until 1975.
It's quite rare to find Aussie advertising content of this period on the 'Net - very glad to have come across these items!
Subject: Liberation in order to put on mascara?
Am I missing something with all the mascara application? Is that what the Suffragettes were fighting for? I Agree with the other comment here. The ads exploit a legitimate social movement, just like almost all advertising. Great example of how far we haven't come yet!
Smoking's not a habit I would encourage, but I do quite like these ads, as much as they're appealing to the women's rights movements for their own gain. Advertising was nice was back when. :)

Absolutely brilliant. Advertising like this makes me want to smoke an entire carton. :-D
Virginia slims was just piggy backing on a legitimate social cause - women's rights and equality. Still a popular advertising gambit. Beware the current "greening" of advertising.
It is amazing I grew up watching some of these ads and now in shock to remember just how stupid they were to begin with.
